Rocky Road Candies

This is another one of the easiest but tastiest little treats you can make. 
Only three ingredients and about ten minutes and voila! An easy treat for you or gifts for others. 

You will need:
  • 9 ounces (1.25 cups) dark chocolate, chopped
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup peanuts
You can use semisweet chocolate if you prefer and you can also do chopped toasted walnuts if you prefer. If you look at your melted chocolate with the nuts and marshmallows and seem to have extra chocolate ( I did) then add in more marshmallows and/or nuts to your liking.

Directions:

1. Prepare a cookie sheet by covering it with aluminum foil or parchment.
2. Melt the chocolate in the microwave or over a double boiler. Stir until completely smooth.

3. Add in the nuts and marshmallows, stirring until they are completely covered with chocolate.


4. Drop by teaspoonfuls on the cookie sheet [use a small cookie scoop for best results], and chill in the refrigerator until set.


 Enjoy!
